    I'm pretty sure that Owens never did -- certainly not in 1935 or 1936 (his complete seasonal record is documented in "Track & Field Performances Through the Years, Vol 1"). In 1934 he was ineligible as he was a freshman.

    I think that you're forgetting two other great OSU quarter-milers -- Glenn Davis and Mal Whitfield. Between them they have 2 Oly gold (relay) medals and 3 #1 rankings in the 400, and 6 Oly golds and 12 #1 rankings in all events combined.

    but as Lord Lindsay said to Eric Liddell, " I already have my medal. EWhy doesn't Eric take my place IN THE QUARTER ? "

    You are a nitpicker !

    Mmmmm?

    Has a QB ever actually thrown a "bomb?' Is Mike Tyson really made of "iron?" Does Jon Drummond really have a "rocket" start? Was Ervin Johnson really "magic?"

    Is the 200 not called the "deuce?" Is a basketball really a "rock?"

    Was she actually a "fox?"

    Is 400 meter not a "quarter" of a mile?

    Don't think you'd be much fun at a party.

    In fact, they have zero Olympic quartermilers. There has never been a quarter mile in the Olympics and there probably never will be.

    No college team other than an MJ anchored Bruin team would stand chance. Remember they have no less than six Olympic quartermilers. Now add another four who all ran sub 45.0r in the 4x4.

    It's not quite Tinkers to Evers to Chance, but who can forget that illustrious alliterative Surgeon lineup:

    McCullouch to Kuller to Killer to Miller

    seems I remember a pretty good USC sprinter/footballer that had a "slammer" problem too, but he was found "not guilty" and now plays golf ? And that team set a GOOD WR; 38.6 h,y ain't too bad !

    Where's Lon Myers and Bernie Wefers?

    Myers held the American record in the 50,100,200,400,800 and the mile all at one time or another in his sprint career.

    Wefers ran a WR 9.8 in 1895. His 300 WR of 30.6 stood for 39 years! He has been callled the greatest sprinter of the 19th century.

    Maybe we could throw David Mack on that team? Tough, tough runners though! I'm remembering them for their positives. "Shakin' the bush boss! Shakin' the bush!"
